Oregon Carbon Policy Office

The Carbon Policy Office conducts research, analysis, and stakeholder engagement to inform a statewide policy framework to grow Oregon's economy while achieving Oregon's greenhouse gas reduction goals.

Over the interim and during sessions, the Carbon Policy Office has provided research and analysis to Legislators on carbon pricing policy design, culminating in the Oregon Climate Action Program passed by the Oregon House of Representatives in House Bill 2020B in the 2019 Legislative Session.

The research and studies conducted prior to the 2019 session by the Carbon Policy Office and a summary of House Bill 2020 is on this website.
